Marine Arctic Ecosystem Study (MARES)
Principal Investigator: Wiese, Francis
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: BOEM issued a request that Stantec Inc. plan and execute a program during the 2016 field season to accomplish t the following objectives: 1) to collect physical, biological and chemical observations in the Eastern Beaufort Sea from moored and moving platforms; 2) to describe and analyze physical, biological and chemical observations acquired from the moving platforms; and, 3) to simultaneousl...

Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Merzouk, Anissa
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The 2017 field program constitutes a subset of activities of the ArcticNet’s marine-based research program that has been conducted in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (IRS) within the framework of Scientific Research Licenses awarded for 2009-2013, for 2014-2015 and for 2016-2017. Planned activities will focus on the recovery and deployment of oceanographic moorings as part of ArcticNet’s Long...

Under The Pole - Innovative Underwater Exploration
Principal Investigator: Bihan-Poudec, Anne-Claire
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: This survey aims at discovering bioluminescent and biofluorescent species in Polar Regions (namely the Arctic), assessing and understanding the potential functions of the phenomena. Marcel Koken and his team hope to discover bioluminescent or biofluorescent species in the Arctic mesophotic zone. As the mission consists of an exploration of an under-studied part of the ocean, the scientific team...

Traditional Ecological Knowledge of Capelin in Darnley Bay, NT
Principal Investigator: McNicholl, Darcy G
Licensed Year(s): 2015
Summary: The primary aim of this project is to synthesize community-based observations over multiple years as traditional knowledge with results obtained by biological surveys conducted in the Darnley Bay nearshore habitat. This information will contribute to understanding how Capelin function in Arctic marine food webs and how that is subject to change in a warming climate. Local observations of Capel...

ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into regio...

Decadal Variability of Marine Hazards
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licensed Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: - To recover, service and re-deploy sub-sea moorings instruments for year-round measurement of ice thickness and ridging, storm waves, sea level, ocean current, temperature and salinity, mammal vocalization, ambient sound and plankton. - To complete ocean and seabed surveys near naturally occurring methane vents on the floor of the Beaufort Sea, usin...

Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) System Study - Part 1 (Ship-based research)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) system study is designed to examine the importance of climate processes in changing the nature of a flaw lead system and the Arctic marine environment in the Northern Hemisphere, and the effect these changes will have on the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, carbon fluxes, and greenhouse gases. Using the Canadian Research Icebreaker (CCGS Amundsen), the team ...

Beaufort Shelf Seabed Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Blasco, Steve M
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The Beaufort Seabed Mapping Project is designed to assess the environmental impact of offshore hydrocarbon exploration and transportation on the renewable resources of the Beaufort Sea. Knowledge of ice scour depths and distribution of ecologically-sensitive areas and permafrost will constrain sub-sea pipeline burial depths and offshore development. In addition, seabed mud volcanoes and gas seeps ...

Effects of climate change on coastal geomorphology and benthic biotic communities, southwestern Banks Island
Principal Investigator: Edinger, Evan N
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: Climate change is affecting coastlines and coastal communities across Arctic Canada. Communities in the Western Arctic, including Sachs Harbour, have described a variety of effects, including warmer temperatures, reduced sea ice thickness, longer duration of open water in summer, increased wave activity, and new or early arrivals of migratory animals. These effects can have a variety of impacts ...

Amundsen Gulf Survey
Principal Investigator: Siferd, Tim
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999
Summary: The Amundsen Gulf Survey is a continuation of the Sachs Harbour Project begun in 1999. The survey will examine the benthic resources near the Inuvialuit communities of Sachs Harbour, Holman and Paulatuk. The survey will begin about the beginning of August in Sachs Harbour and will remain near Sachs for approximately 2 week before being picked up by the Laurier. Ship time limits work to approxima...
